This is worth passing along…

“It’s incumbent upon all of us to let our families and friends know the true status of gay relationships in America — that we are unionless. We pay equal taxes but are eligible for far fewer benefits — 1,094, to be exact. We have neither inheritance rights nor access to our partners’ social security or pensions. Most of us don’t even have the right to visit our partners in the hospital. And the national GOP wants to enshrine this oppression in the very constitution that guarantees everyone else freedom and the pursuit of happiness. We’ve all heard the stories of German Jews who said nothing to their neighbors as the Nazis rose to power. Let’s learn a lesson from history and not wait until it’s too late to let the world know that we’re under assault from people who mean business.”

— Columnist Louis Weisberg, Chicago Free Press, Jan. 28.
